Since 1955, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) has been tracking Santa. Yes, the folks who are responsible for the aerospace and maritime defense of Canada and the United States have been doing a wonderful ‘ holiday service’ that is they have been tracking Santa, for all those little boys and girls who are eagerly awaiting a visit from their Christmas friend – Santa Clause.
So, now it’s that time of the year and Mr. Clause has already begun his round the world trip for gifting all the good little boys and girls their Christmas gifts. With the technological advancements, we are seeing in the world around us today, it was going to be but a matter of time that the latest technology was going to be used to make Santa’s tracking more interactive and fun.
Say hello to the new Android app for tracking Santa brought to you by NORAD. Called NORAD, android users can download the app from the android app market. The app allows user to access the ‘flight path’ of their beloved Santa right from the time he takes off with his reindeer sled from his base somewhere on the North Pole. User will be able to track Santa’s movement beginning Christmas Eve. Once the user downloads the app, he/she will be presented with a time that starts from zero, which essentially means that Santa Clause has started on his journey. The app has a built in NORAD map, which enables a user to track Santa’s travel.
No doubt it’s the adults who are going to download the app for their kids, but it’s an app that lets the whole family have some fun. Agreed, just monitoring Santa’s travel can become a bit boring after a bit of time, so this app comes with its own cute little game called “Elf Toss”. So children can play the game if they are getting bored with all that tracking. More importantly, children and adults alike also get a glimpse into the working of NORAD and all that it stands for. So, there is a little bit of education on offer through this android app as well.
So, if you want to involve your Android device in all the fun and frolic happening this Christmas, it is this Android app that can make all the difference. It makes for an engaging time with the whole family. But, it must be noted that the Android app market is full of apps with a Christmassy theme; though this app is a wonderful option, you can choose something that perfectly meets your needs and requirements.
